Ray Owen
Brief Description:

Anticipate and respond to weather from five days out to the next five minutes. Understand how to correlate prognostic charts and the new graphical forecasts for aviation with traditional forecast products in a logical, strategic approach to weather and flight planning. Participate in an interactive demo of popular tools for preflight and inflight weather analysis, as well as a review of the old-school capabilities still available with just a radio and a chart. Discuss the differences between the preflight workflow and the inflight workflow, and the markers that indicate a need to revise the plan or divert. Join us as we examine how the military and airlines integrate weather into flight planning, while also taking advantage of the newer, more integrated technologies available to general aviation.
